In a world that is brimming with information, technology and extraordinary access to every conceivable subject, it is a welcome delight to step back from the present moment and its hectic pace of activity and visit the works of thinkers and philosophers who lived in ancient times. Despite the vast differences that separate the ancient world from our modern civilisation, it can be extremely beneficial to meditate on the writings of those who recorded their observations for the benefit of future generations and whose works are as relevant today as they were several thousand years ago. In many cases, we only have the scattered fragments of monumental literary works that sought to chart the vast potential of human consciousness. But since we are in so many ways the same people as those distant ancestors who inhabited the ancient world, the lessons and insights of these great thinkers serve to provide us with extraordinary insights into the mechanics and potential of the human psyche. As an antidote to the distractions of our modern civilisation, the power and presence of these ancient fragments of wisdom can restore balance and perspective to our minds and I would happily commend them to anyone seeking to find greater peace in their lives.
